Moms have kids pulling at their clothes and hair. Moms have just enough time to run a brush through their hair and get out the door for that play-date, that grocery run, or that doctor appointment. Often time manicures and pedicures sadly get put off and a massage...well, they are almost non-existent. And although most moms do not want this to be the image they portray, sometimes there just isn't enough time.
Here are a few quick tips from busy mom and beautician Erica Blake, for other moms with a busy lifestyle (yes, that's you!):
1. No time for a manicure....keep your nails looking healthy with OPI Nail Envy. It dries in less than 30 seconds and keeps nails healthy by strengthening from the inside, and keeping harmful chemicals (such as cleaning products) from penetrating from the outside.
2. No time for a pedicure....keep tired feet soft with this easy, inexpensive trick - after an evening bath, cover feet with a thin layer of Vaseline. Then wrap in clear plastic wrap and cover with socks while you're sleeping. In the morning, feet will be soft and smooth.
WARNING: Don't forget they are on there and dash off in the middle of the night to check on a crying baby...it's like running on a skating rink. (I know from experience!)
3. Take your vitamins...Vitamin E is great to keep your hair, skin, and nails in good condition from the inside out. Check with your doctor to ensure safety.
4. Don't always rely on a ponytail for quick fixes...while a ponytails seems to be the easiest way to get your hair out of your way, repeated use of elastic ponytail holders can cause breakage and damage. Consult with a professional stylist to find the perfect, low-maintenance style for your busy life. A professional will be able to work with your hair's texture and problem areas to make the most of your assets while keeping your routine down to a minimum. Plus, nothing makes you feel better than a new look!
